On November 28, Xiaomi Group won the first prize of China Association for Quality‘s China Quality Technology Award together with China Guangdong Nuclear Power Engineering Co., Ltd. and China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALT). This is the highest award in the field of quality technology in China. There have been over one thousand entries in this year’s election. In the end, five of them won the first prize. Xiaomi is the only and the first Internet company to get this honor.
The ‘China Association for Quality‘s China Quality Technology Award’ was established in 2005. It is the first scientific and technological award approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Office for Science and Technology Award in the field of quality technology in China. It is also the highest award in the field of quality technology in China. The award is reviewed once a year, and the number of awards is strictly controlled to promote the progress of China’s quality technology, to recognize units and teams that have made outstanding contributions in the field of quality technology, and to improve quality innovation and competitiveness.
It is understood that Xiaomi award-winning project was the ‘high-quality Internet agile development technology’, based on big data, innovation and optimization around the various stages of software development, the implementation of mature quality models, and the formation of a complete quality control loop. Xiaomi encourages continuous innovation in models, methods, technologies, products, and so on, actively communicates with peers, develops ideas and shares innovations, and drives the overall development of the industry.
In December last year, at the Xiaomi internal quality meeting, Lei Jun said: ‘We want to use telescopes to see innovation and look at quality with a microscope. Because innovation determines how high we can fly, and quality determines how far we can go.’
In July of this year, Lei Jun issued an internal letter saying: ‘After the listing of Xiaomi Group, our first priority is to comprehensively improve the quality of products and services.’
By the way, at the end of October, Xiaomi was awarded the ‘2018 National Quality Benchmark’ issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. This award was given to Xiaomi for leading the development of industry quality and deepening the quality image of domestic products.
